  • 500ml chicken stock
  • 1 ripe mango, peeled, stoned and cut into bite-sized chunks
  • 200g mango chutney, plus extra to serve (optional)

Method

  1. Put the spring onions, ginger, garlic, chilli, coriander stalks, thyme, lime zest and juice, allspice and oil in a food processor, then blend to a paste. Pour over the chicken drumsticks and leave to marinate for at least 1 hr, or preferably up to 1 day.

  2. Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Tip the rice and beans into a large roasting tin with deep sides. Remove the chicken from the marinade and set aside. Mix the stock into the marinade in the bowl and stir well. Pour the stock over the rice and beans, then put the chicken drumsticks and the mango pieces on top. Cover the tray tightly with foil and bake for 30 mins.

  3. Take the tray out of the oven and remove the foil. Increase the temperature to 220C/200C fan/gas 7. Spoon the mango chutney over the drumsticks and return to the oven, uncovered, for 35-40 mins, to brown the chicken pieces and allow the rice to absorb all the liquid. Before serving, fluff up the rice a little with a fork and scatter with the coriander leaves. Serve with lime wedges and extra mango chutney, if you like.

Loved the flavours but so dry, husband and son didn't really eat much as it was so dry, would do it again if I figure out a sauce to go with it, i did use chicken breast as we don't eat any other part of the chicken maybe that made a difference but others have to so not sure, i marinated the chicken over night too but all lovely flavours but just too dry.

This was really tasty and easy to cook. I wouldn't use chicken drumsticks again though, would use chicken breasts on the bone instead. Myself and my husband loved the dish.

I live in the US, so there are some issues: Coriander, should be cilantro, I bought the wrong thing, the seeds instead of the leaves, so it tastes different....too lazy to buy cilantro so I just went ahead with coriander seeds. Spicy.. Wth is mango chutney, can't find it at Safeway so I skipped it. Too lazy to make one from scratch, too much work... Oven temperature, no, not the conversion from C to F, I know how to do that since grade school, but I don't get the gas thing, I don't have that option in my oven, plus we have been having issues with the oven not getting hot enough, so the chicken still came out pink! I cooked just the chicken for another half hour, so tiring, I think they're done-ish. Cleaning the pan, the rice stuck to the bottom of the pan because I cooked the chicken for so long! Spent like an hour scrubbing the pan. So not making this again.... I love the pulled pork recipe with slow cooker, cinnamon, apple juice, easier to make and tastes good. I don't know why the rating for that is only 3 stars, this one doesn't deserve 5 stars imo.

Really enjoyed this - very tasty indeed. Tip: It needs less than the stated cooking time. Somewhere near a total of 50 mins is fine.

This is a favourite in our house, love it. I have also tweaked some ingredients, I use chicken thigh instead and substitute thyme with 'schwartz moroccan spice' mix which is really tasty. Making the marinade feels high effort so I've started making it the day before and marinading the chicken overnight then the next day I just add the rice, beans and mango and pop in the oven. Really nice dish, worth the effort.

A great hit for this recipe. Plenty of preparation but worth it. I used chicken fillet chopped in thin long slices. Much better than drumsticks. Lovely meal very taste with a sweet taste.

I really enjoyed this recipe - it tasted fab and was very easy to cook. Great for entertaining as everything cooks in one pan and you can take it straight to the table.

That was really delicious! Lovely flavours and I only marinaded the chicken for an hour. I increased the cooking time of the first bit as it didn't appear to be cooking very well and drizzled on a bit of extra water, but it came out beautifully at the end.

Absolutely beautiful, we used chicken breast instead of drumsticks and brown basmati rice. Seriously try this if you are considering! 5* from us
